having just changed my operating system from Win98 to XP, my broadband connection is not available. I can see the icon in network connections but its saying 'unavailable - device missing'. What should I do?
Thanks

Hi there, thanks for your reply but the only yellows visible are related to multimedia contoller and multimedia video controller. Any other ideas?

Is the network interface on the mother board or is it on a card. IF the later, re-seat it.
